Abstract

CAROLYN T. SWAN The Old French Prose Legend of Saint Julien the Hospitaller Ca. 140 Seiten. Ln. ca. DM 42.(Beihefte zur Zeitschrift f r romanische Philologie. Band 160) This first critical edition of a fme thirteenth Century text, still virtually unknown, should make the Old French Prose Julian fully accessible to all who are interested in medieval French literature. Base text of Professor Swan's edition is MS. 27 of the Bibliotheque Municipale, a Francien manuscript dating from the early fourteenth Century. Seven more of the twenty-three extant MSS of the Old French Prose Julian were analyzed for variant readings, which appear at the end of the text. Through comparative study of these manuscripts, scribal errors in the text were identified and emended, restoring earlier readings which had been corrupted. The text has been faithfully transcribed; emendations are well marked, and rejected readings are given after the text, with the variants. In addition, the text is accompanied by an analysis of the manuscript tradition, critical notes, a glossary, and a literary introduction tracing the evolution and avatars of the Julian legend in French and Latin through the thirteenth Century - to focus on the achievements of the Old French
